    EDI:Latin-1 diacritics not correctly sent via EDI

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Voyager
    • Product Version: 7.2.1

    Bug Report Form for 16384-16465

    Module(s): Acquisitions/EDI
    Server platform(s) affected: Solaris/all
    PC OS (if applicable): n/a
    Browser & version (if applicable): n/a
    Release(s): reported in 7.2.1; replicated in 8.0
    Last version without bug (if applicable): ?

    Expected results: Latin-1 diacritics should be correctly transmitted in EDI messages.

    Actual results: Some Latin-1 diacritics are not correctly transmitted in EDI messages.

    Workflow implications: Vendors may have trouble receiving the files.

    Replication steps:
    Find a record that has, for example, an ?, which is supported in the Latin-1 character set.
    Create a PO and add a line item using this bib record.
    On the PO, go to File>Send via EDI.
    Go to EDI>Process EDI Messages>Outgoing, and enter a Search By of Create Date equal to today’s date.
    Highlight the message you created and hit Send.
    Supply a file name and hit OK.
    On the server, go to /m1/voyager/yyydb/edi/outgoing and view the message you just generated – you’ll see that the ? is incorrectly transmitted (for example, re?pertoire becomes re??pertoire).
